30 WORST PUNISHMENT YOU EVER RECEIVED AS A CHILD


30. get…

My Dad used to tell us he'd sell us to the gypsies if we didn't behave. Once you get a bit older you realise he's bluffing (at least I hope he was).

This led to one hilarious incident when my Dad shouted at my 7 year old brother that he was "gonna get the gypsies and make them come get him." He picked up the phone and started dealing a number. My 7 year old brother smiled, knowing full well he wasn't really but my 4 year old brother burst into tears and ran to my Dad screaming "Nooooo, nooooo, don't sell Benny to the yippies chippies!! Please! Don't do it!" bawling his eyes out.

Total backfire.

Edit: Oh! It wasn’t ‘yippies’ it was ‘chippies’ my youngest brother called them. In the UK, that’s a slang word for a fish and chip shop, a takeaway place!
